If you fancy a cut-price bullet-hell blaster for your iOS device this week, then you're in luck.

That's because Cave's delightfully overblown Silver Award-winning shmup Bug Princess 2 has had its price shot to pieces.

Yesterday, the game would have set you back £4.99 / $6.99. Today, however, you can grab it for just £2.99 / $4.99. That probably represents about a 40 percent saving. I don't have a calculator to hand.

Bug Princess 2 is a top-down shooter in which you pilot a ship through five levels of chaotic bullet-dodging madness.

The first boss is a T-Rex, and you shoot it's face off. That's the sort of scrap other game designers would save for the end of the game. Not Cave, though.

With four difficulty levels, three games modes, and two characters from which to choose, Bug Princess 2 boasts a good chunk of content for you to sink your laser-loving teeth into.

Plus, it's gorgeous. All bright colours, big explosions, and gorgeous laser flashes. It might make your eyes bleed, but it's pretty cheap. So, you know, that's good.

You can grab Bug Princess 2 from the App Store for £4.99 / $6.99 [buy] right this second. And if you like shooting lasers, you really should get your virtual wallet out now.
